Last Tuesday, on 13 November 2012, ATiT organised a workshop together with KU Leuven (Teaching and Learning Department) about lecture capture in the context of the European Lifelong Learning project REC:all. The workshop called “Lecture Capture: current best practices and future developments in universities” was held in Heverlee, Belgium and was attended by over 60 people and included a mix of people from different countries (Belgium, Estonia, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Spain, UK, Singapore, Japan, South Africa, USA) with various backgrounds (academics, industry experts, students, ICT staff etc.).
The first part of the day included presentations that highlighted best practices in lecture capture in different institutions: KU Leuven (by Roman Verraest), Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (by Daniel Tan), Estonian Information Technology College (by Marko Puusaar), Universitat Politecnica de Valencia & the TransLectures project (by Carlos Turro-Ribalta), University of Manchester & Opencast Matterhorn (by Stuart Phillipson).
After the presentation sessions the participants took part in a World Café where pedagogy, technology, IPR and organisational issues where discussed in small groups.
The agenda also included opportunities for one-to-one discussions with industry experts from Polycom (Marci Powell), Techsmith (Anton Bollen) and Mediasite by SonicFoundry (Matt McCurdy).
The day ended with a final panel discussion which included a strong message from industry representatives: “please give us more of your feedback, so together we can improve products to better meet your needs”.
Recordings of the workshop will be online very soon on www.rec-all.info.
The REC:all project management team met in Amsterdam to discuss the progress of the project over the last year. The first draft versions of the pedagogical, technological and legal reports are being discussed in order to present them to the European lecture capture recording community during the first REC:all workshop in Leuven on 13 November 2012.
At the workshop case studies will be presented about different forms of lecture capture use. Amongst the speakers there are Dr Daniel Tan from the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, Roman Verraest from the KU Leuven, Carlos Turro from the Universitat Politecnica de Valencia, Stuart Phillipson from the Manchester University & Opencast Matterhorn, Marko Pussaar from the Estonian Information Technology College.
After the presentations there will be a Q&A session where you have the opportunity to connect with industry experts on video conference, lecture capture and screencasting. There you can expect: Anton Bollen from TechSmith, Linda Storey from Echo360, Marci Powell from Polycom and Ray Hassell from Mediasite.
In the afternoon everyone is invited to attend a World Café to discuss the main challenges and the issues around the use of lecture capture nowadays. The day will be concluded with a final panel to discuss the main outcomes of the World café.

The REC:all team held its second project meeting on Monday 18 and Tuesday 19 June in London. An important outcome from this meeting is the planning of a series of seven webinars which will be held during the coming months. During these webinars speakers will discuss how lecture capture can be used in higher education in an innovative way, discussing best practise examples as well as addressing legal, technical and pedagogical issues (the detailed program will be online soon). Two key reviews which will be major outcomes of the project were also central to the discussion that took place during this meeting. The first focuses on pedagogy and looks at how learning goals can best be reached when using video in educational settings. The second deals with technical developments in lecture capture and the various approaches that institutions can take when seeking to implement robust infrastructure.
